Good morning, folks. Just a quick question for you: if Coke Zero is advertised to taste like the real thing, then why not just make Coke with the Coke Zero recipe? The “zero” is to mean the younger brother of Coke has zero calories, making it the healthier option. But if they taste the same, why not just use the healthier formula for regular Coke? There are only 2 possible answers:
1. They actually don’t taste the same, so 2 different products makes sense.
2. Money. Coca-Cola can bring in more revenue by having 2 different products to offer customers.
I suppose I already know the answer, but if you are compelled to chime in, please do. Otherwise, enjoy this cute Coke commercial and get back to mowing the yard, ya lazy bum!
